Nice.  What is the new maximum file size supported by PXELINUX, now that 
this check has gone away?

Am I correct in assuming that it is now only limited by the fundamental 
TFTP protocol limit of 65535 packets?  (Depending on negotiated packet 
size from the TFTP server, this is around the neighborhood of 80MB.)
